Check this out:











F2thaK, do you remember when I asked you to put the DOT/FULLSTOP button on front of SPACE button?
I just did it, so easy.


Download it from here:

http://www.2shared.com/document/11FPTJa7/en_online.html




If you want this mod, copy it to MyDocs, then on terminal:

username: devel-su
passwd: rootme
cp -R /home/user/MyDocs/en.xml /usr/share/meegotouch/virtual-keyboard/layouts/

Then, SETTINGS > TIME AND LANGUAGE > TEXT INPUT > INSTALLED INPUT METHODS, uncheck all (one or more) and check ENGLISH (MD) > DONE and done!


It's much better now, I used to press "." insted of "SPACE".

Indeed, I have the problem of pressing full-stop accidentally all the time! But i have never thought of having it on the left

This is a good mod! Thanks Ennine!

This is a great idea. Can this be applied to the Swype keyboard too? I tend to use the Swype keyboard more (even when typing} given the auto-correction and suggestion are better.

Thanks

Not bad, thanks for sharing, added to the Google docs guide.
It'd be handy for all, if you mentioned the section of the XML file you edited.
That way folks don't have to bother with a pre-edited one.
They can simply back-up their existing one, & then edit it.

Yeah, it's not that hard. I mean, this cannot be done by my father, but...you need to know how web programming works...especially HTML.

You can download that file, open it via Notepad and you'll se the code. That code is there just to align N9's keyboard. You can do whatever you want with it. You can change place of every button there.



Code for the Q letter:

<key> <binding label="q"/> <binding shift="true" label="Q"/> </key>

If you put this after lets say SPACE, the button Q will be placed after SPACE button.


Now, button size, place between them and so on are dictated by another file, which is too complicated to play with (libmeego-keyboard).

AFAIK, you can find there a lot of this files for keyboards, for every available keyboard, so if you put this file there, keyboard number will be increased by one and you'll find it in a keyboard list...
So, if you place this file in that folder, the original keyboard will stay there, just name of this one should be different, you can rename it...


<keyboard title="English (MD)" version="1.0" catalog="en_gb" language="en_gb">


Open that file and you'll see this part of the code, ENGLISH (MD) is the name of this keyboard. If you want, you can change it to lets say Jalyst, that name will appear on keyboard list.
